Menril trees grow additional logs around their base, similarly to roots, and their trunk will extend into a 3x3 cross where their leaves start. They require a 3x3 free area with dirt underneath with the sapling in the center in order to grow properly. They require an 11x11x9 cleared area to grow, however if in an area less than 12 blocks high, will shrink to be one block shy of the ceiling. Menril Leaves emit light and will occasionally drop Menril Berries, while Menril Wood blocks will sometimes be replaced by Enriched Menril Wood, which will drop normal Menril Wood and a Crystalized Menril Chunk when broken.
Menril Wood can be made into Menril Wood Planks, which can then be made into stairs or doors. It can also be processed in a Squeezer or Mechanical Squeezer into Menril Resin, making them the main source of Crystalized Menril.
